This paper describes the methodology, results and limitations of the 2013 International Diabetes Federation (IDF) Atlas (6th edition) estimates of the worldwide numbers of prevalent cases of type 1 diabetes in children (<15 years). The majority of relevant information in the published literature is in the form of incidence rates derived from registers of(More)
We describe three mutations of the red-cell anion exchangerband 3 (AE1, SLC4A1) gene associated with distalrenal tubular acidosis (dRTA) in families from Malaysia and Papua NewGuinea: Gly(701)-->Asp (G701D), Ala(858)-->Asp(A858D) and deletion of Val(850) (DeltaV850). The mutationsA858D and DeltaV850 are novel; all three mutations seem to berestricted to(More)
Obesity and multiple pituitary hormone deficiency are common complications after surgery for childhood craniopharyngioma. We hypothesized that post craniopharyngioma surgery, children are at high risk for the metabolic syndrome, including insulin resistance due to excess weight gain and GH deficiency. This study characterized body composition (anthropometry(More)
Anecdotal and published information suggest a low incidence and prevalence of type 1 diabetes in Papua New Guinea (PNG). Incidence and prevalence were followed prospectively from July 1996, using the PNG Paediatric Surveillance Unit (PSU). No children were receiving insulin in Papua New Guinea at the start of the period. Over the next 4.5 years, 8 cases(More)
Yaws is a re-emerging disease in Papua New Guinea. A resurgence of yaws is documented in the periurban settlements around Port Moresby. A total of 494 cases were identified from April 2000 to September 2001. The age distribution ranged from 2 years to adult (median 9 years). Presenting symptoms were adequately recorded in 286 cases (58%). Of these, 42%(More)
AIM To determine the number and distribution of diabetic persons in Papua New Guinea (PNG), and to document available services. METHODS Survey of the 19 hospitals thought to be the most significant centres for care of diabetes. RESULTS 16 hospitals were successfully surveyed. Type 1 diabetes is very rare, with 18 known cases in the country (6 less than(More)
This cross-sectional study describes the body composition of 265 normal subjects (137 males and 128 females) aged 4-26 y determined by dual-energy x-ray absorptiometry (DXA). Lean tissue mass (LTM) and bone mineral content (BMC) increased with age in females until 13.4 and 15.7 y, respectively, and in males until 16.6 and 17.4 y, respectively. A strong(More)
AIMS To determine prevalence and incidence estimates for clinically recognized cases of Type 1 diabetes from the Life For a Child Program (LFAC) with onset < 26 years in six representative districts, and the capital, of Rwanda. METHODS Cases were identified from the LFAC registry and visits to district hospitals. Denominators were calculated from(More)
